Notching the stiles

Leave the table saw blade angled at 45°, measure the width of each rail, and mark a line on the molded edge of its mating stile a corresponding distance from the end. Cut into the molded edge at the line, making certain that the cut will not mar the face of the stile. Slice off most of the strip of molding between the 45° cut and each end of the stile with a band saw (above, left). Smooth the cut edge using the table saw. Leaving the rip fence in place, hold the stile flush against the miter gauge, and slide the stock back and forth across the blade (above, right). Repeat the process for all the stiles.
